About a year ago, I started posting cartoons pertaining to writers. I did this as a means of taking my mind off of the negativity going on prior to our last election. Laughter can be good medicine, but so often the negativity doesn’t magically disappear with a nonsensical image or a funny story.
In fact, negativity is a tool of our most mortal enemy, the devil. He uses it to make us question, to create doubt, to enrage and to cause hatred and finally bring us down to his level. When he gains control, all hell breaks loose, (no pun intended) and exposes the dark side in each of us.
I happen to believe that we’re much better than that. For the most part our people want to live in harmony. We don’t all hate or explode with anger the minute some new opinion arises. I think we, as Americans, get sick of all the nonsense that appears on our television screens each day. Yet, those who deem it necessary to control our thinking, are on location when any kind of negative behavior occurs. Before things have a chance to go to trial; before all the facts have been gathered, before the incidents even happen, the media has already made it impossible for us to think for ourselves. Somehow, the devil has made it into the newsroom and begun the brainwashing.
Over time, we’ve become numb to all the ugliness we see everyday. It wasn’t enough to see men crushed in battle during Viet Nam. The embedded media took it on itself to show us every brutal deed as it happened. We’ve been eyewitnesses to assassinations, cold blooded murder, theft, corruption all in the name of instant news and instant gratification. We have become apathetic, because we feel there is nothing we can do about it.
I think there is something we can do. First we have to approach the King of Creation in prayer. We need His direction once more. We have allowed the devil to win if we don’t turn back to God. We need a spiritual revolution. God has promised to heal our land when we rely on His intervention.
We also need to become a United States again. The split between the races is just as great as it was in the 1960’s. Join me in praying for our land, our government, our people and the final destruction of the evil one who is trying to ruin us. In the end God will win.
